Healing Loss: A Workshop Retreat for Montefiore Care Providers Healing Arts Program, Montefiore Medical Center
Date: October 15-17, 2014
Location: Mariandale Conference and Retreat Center,
Many of us serve as caregivers, both in our work with patients and in our own families. Caregiving can have a profound effect on our personal and professional lives. It can bring love and gratification and can also bring stress, especially if we do not have the opportunity to take care of ourselves. Caregiving can also bring grief and loss when we lose people that we care for.
It is important both for ourselves and for those who depend on us that we take the time to deal with our own losses: how can we effectively help relieve the suffering of others if we are weighed down by our own?
This 3-day residential workshop is a powerful experiential and didactic program that provides participants with the opportunity to identify and work through some of the losses, grief and changes which often occur in caregivers’ lives. Led by experienced and skilled facilitators in a safe, supportive and confidential setting, the workshop offers ways to let go of some of the emotional ‘baggage’ and unfinished business that can get in the way of our being truly present for ourselves and for those who depend on us. Participants learn new approaches for self-care, to help build resilience when facing stress in the future.
All meals and sleeping accommodations are provided. Please note that participants sleep over at the conference center on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
